I am always amazed when a novella can impact me as much as a full-length novel. That was definitely the case in More Than a Promise. As I read this story, I connected with these two main characters, especially Mariana, whose point of view the story was told from.
This was such a sweet novella. I enjoyed every bit of it, with my favorite scenes being the ones between Reuben and Mariana. It was comforting to see them connecting as friends and growing into a relationship that was more than simple friendship or duty, following an especially trying time. This story was uplifting and I look forward to more in the series.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
At the heart of the Amish community of Wells Landing, Oklahoma, a women’s quilting circle rallies around a member who is suddenly alone, under unusual circumstances…
One of the only women in the quilting circle without children, Mariana Miller prayed to be blessed with a little one throughout fifteen years of marriage. But now, newly widowed, Mariana discovers she’s pregnant—with twins! How will she support herself and the babies, not to mention stay healthy when the doctor puts her on bed rest? As neighbors band together to help, Mariana is more grateful than ever for the Amish community. She especially looks forward to visits from Reuben Weisel, her late husband’s business partner and best friend. Reuben’s quiet strength comforts her—until he proposes marriage…
Honorable and loyal, there’s no doubt Reuben sincerely wants to provide for Mariana and the twins. Never married, he can now be a good husband and father. So long as the bishop approves, to wed him is a sensible choice—and an unexpected gift. But when Mariana discovers there is more behind Reuben’s proposal than she thought, their fragile agreement and fledgling love will be put to the test…
